#2 Pencils and Back to School
There is definite proof that our summer (although brief) is winding down as the soil prepares itself for the next season. We have sunflowers and sweetpeas blooming. The border along our fence is stunning with the array of oranges, yellows and reds and this morning the dew on the windshield was almost frost. I still have the urge every August to purchase #2 pencils, notebooks, erasers, glue, pens, and paper. I look forward to the county fair and I want to go shopping for new shoes, socks and underwear.
While growing up the stores in downtown Great Falls hosted sidewalk sales during fair week. It was always an adventure and we would hit the stores and eventually we would all meet back at my Aunt Pat and Uncle Floyd's bar (That Bar) and then head over to the state fair.
